We have a new found respect for K.R.I.T after hearing him slay his verse on A$AP's 1 Train, despite stiff competetion from Kendrick, Joey Bada$$ and Danny Brown.
We overlooked his ability to create raps that reach right inside and sum up things without wasting words. "Most rappers pay the world ends so they don't have to drop another album," was just one 1 Train highlight. So damn good.
On this, over Nas/ J Cole's Stay instrumental, he once again gets emo, never angry, as he talks about poverty and pain with trademark mind-spinning wordplay and flow that is fast but concise.
Newly converted, we're off to download this year's K.R.I.T mixtape right now.
